I asked them what they saw that was green. I had William go first and he picked the frog. Then Natalie pointed out the two grasshoppers. I picked the turtle.
When we got here, I told Natalie I was wrong and it wasn't a color book. It was a book about wondering.
What a fun page! I had Natalie look out the window at our tree and asked if she could imagine a rabbit that big. I told her I would be a little scared, but she said he looked nice. We then looked at the little bunnies and said they didn't look scared.
We didn't say anything about this page the first time, but we could have talked about the time of day and weather or the changes in colors. We could have wondered what it would be like to be a rock, too.
When we opened to this page, I asked Natalie what she thought he would wonder next.
I pointed out he was using his ears as wings. I asked Natalie if she would like to fly like a butterfly, too. She said she would and that we should get her a butterfly costume.
I asked them what the new animal was before reading the text. William told us it was a kitty.
We talked about the family bunnies in the background.
I said how they were all snuggling and sleeping together, but Natalie pointed out quickly that Little White Rabbit is not sleeping. I love this last picture and we could have talked more about how he continued to wonder, perhaps because he can always come home and feel safe.
